Making its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011 the Aston Martin Vantage S is the most powerful version in the V8 Vantage line-up. Aston captured the Vantage footage on the Spanish Ascari Race Resort track before the first journalists got the chance to drive the British sports car.
The V8 Vantage S should bridge the gap between the V8 Vantage and the more powerful V12 Vantage RS. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage S retains the 4.7 liter V8 engine but has an improved output of 436hp, 16hp more than the standard V8 vantage. The torque is improved from 470Nm to 490Nm. The top speed is announced to be 305km/h.
